Does it happen (often) to you?

Never checked. I flip for what I want then move on.

I hope it does. The competition for goods and erroneous "at the moment" pricing are necessary for the economy.

I mostly sell on RMAH and a lot of the time their wouldn't be much profit flipping some of the things I sell after you take into account the $1.00 fee.

Oh yes, the flippers get flipped! I bought a triumvirate for 3 mil, sold it for 20 and saw it immediately on the AH for 59 mil! Only happened once though, it was my first time in the "triumvirate field":)

I've seen a few of my flips end up back on the AH with a higher price. Not sure if those ones actually sold though.

I just wonder, are there so many people buying stuff all the time - e.g. innas helms sell by the buckloads?

And the second round flips - do the flippers make anything at all?

Noob question - when is the best time of the day to list? Using PDT UTC-7 as the benchmark.

I don't think time makes much difference but day of the week does. I always sell more on Sundays and weekends.

This is funny, though, because I have been selling most of my items (RMAH between 10 € to 30 €) throughout Tuesday to Thursday.

Maybe it is market sector - you're capturing the more "hardcore" players who play mid week, I don't have any items listed over $5.

I sell much less on weekends too, which always surprises me.

I price in the hopes that I get flipped. I'd prefer selling 20 items at a 20% discount than 10 at no discount any day.
